Justin Verlander and Kate Upton will reportedly marry in Italy this weekend

The Houston Astros have won their very first World Series, and love is in the air. Ace pitcher Justin Verlander and his fiancée, model and actress Kate Upton, are reportedly tying the knot in Italy over the weekend.


There’s been no word from Verlander or the Astros about whether he’ll be missing the parade to celebrate his nuptials. However, there are a few more wedding details out there. According to US Magazine, the wedding will be in Tuscany, and Upton already has her dress picked out — she showed it off to her bridal party during her late October bridal shower.

The couple has been together since 2014, and Verlander asked Upton to marry him just before the 2016 season. Upton was often seen at Astros playoff games over the past month, and she and Verlander shared kiss on the field after the game was over.

Apparently winning a World Series gave more than just Verlander and Upton wedding fever. Shortstop Carlos Correa proposed to his girlfriend Daniela Rodriguez on the field shortly after the final out of the game.
